Mr. Ed, I am hoping someone may be able to enlighten me as to the reason why I haven't received any finches at my feeder? I have always enjoyed watching birds and often place black oil sunflower seeds out in order to keep a colorful variety about the yard. I had been wanting to give finches a try so I purchased a simple sock feeder and following the directions, hung it about five feet from the ground. This was probably two months ago. I haven't seen the first finch And my feeder is still filled to capacity. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any information! --Suzanna Streeval
